As promised, here are the details for the project.
You have chosen something YOU are interested in and want to learn about (BTW: I’ll be sharing with you a really effective strategy for finding out more very shortly).
You are to do something with your new knowledge that you can share with me/the class/the world.
The ‘rules’ are pretty simple:
- You must be able to provide sources for all your references/facts/information;
- Er, that’s about it, really;
- If in doubt, refer to rule 1.
As I have tried to make clear, you are free to share what you have learned in any way you choose: essay, poetry, a story, a modern dance, a song, an album, a film, a documentary, a crochet blanket (much faster than knitting!), cake(s)or anythingelse that allows you , to show off some skills that you have that I would be unlikely to know about otherwise…
The Serious Bit: From my point-of-view, and for assessment purposes, you need to be able to explain the decisions you have made/choices you have made. Er, that’s about it… though don’t forget Rule 1 above!
DEADLINE: The intention is that you should be ready to share in the last week of term (w/c: 27/6/16)
As inspiration, here are some bits and pieces that previous classes have created…
